My life post cleanse

post cleanse i feel great. i am maintaining my weight loss, but what i want to do is jump start it again! sooo, i introduced something new into my diet, JUICING!!!!

i'm sooo happy that i started juicing! i never thought it would taste sooo good! they are really fulling as well! i found some recipes on youtube and by just googling "green juice recipes" i came across so many blogs & articles full of great information!

my favorite juice recipe :

♦ perfect morning essential juice *4-6 carrots, 4-6 stalks of celery, 1 lemon, 1 Macintosh or yellow apple. (this makes roughly 34-40 oz.) ...i tweaked this recipe just a tad.. instead of a lemon i used a lime, and instead of a yellow apple, i used a green one. :)

my faaaaaaavorite juice of all time! (smoothie)

♦ SILK almond milk, 2 bananas, a few frozen blueberries & ice. oooomg i just love it! sooo so good!

if you don't have a juicer, you can still make your green juice! i use my blender (never knew i could do that haha) just chop up your greens... add some water and blend (or pulse) then strain! it's that simple! sometimes after i strain the juice i crush some ice in my blender then add the juice to it and pulse (or blend) mmm mmm good!

"if you do nothing else healthy all day long, do this!" ..that was a quote from greensmoothiegirl on youtube! ..idk, that just makes sooo much sense..

so far since i've been juicing i lost a total of 6lbs! so you know what that means right.... 26 more pounds to go & i will be at my goal weight!!!!!!!!!!

i will keep you guys posted on my progress xo

Before & After Pics

Sry for not updating you guys sooner, but I've completed 14 days and lost a total of 10 more lbs!!! Not what I was shooting for, but I'm still happy with it!

One of the wonderful ppl I met on the cleanse as well {Allina} said she would really love me to make some make-up tutorial videos because when she is finished with her cleanse she plans on doing a photo shoot! she is on day 40 of 60!!!!! She looks really amazing! So post cleanse, I still feel GREAT! I feel like I have accomplished so much, there is no way I can give up now! I owe it to myself to finish what I started!

quick weight loss tip i came across:

when dining out ask the waiter to pack half of your meal in a doggy bag before it reaches the table! that way you don't see it, you don't miss it! out of sight ; out of mind! you won't over eat! & you can have it the next day for lunch! xo

Here I am at my baby shower 8/30/09



I can't wait until I reach my goal weight!

Having photos to look back on really helps!!!!!!
